Does anyone know of any more English phrases such as

	People of his like like like him.
	She said that that that man would leave.

where the same lexical item is found thrice repeated?

I'm making this request for a colleague. Can anyone out there translate
the phrase "We are all related" into Swahili and into Yoruba? In advance,
Thanks!

Hi all you ESL experts!

 I am trying to help a friend improve his English Pronunciation.
He is working full time for a Military Contractor, and he is
working on his MS in EE. His English pronunciation is poor and
I am trying to find some tapes, books, or both to help him improve
his pronunciation. Any ideas? He is Vietnamese by the way. Is it
to late to change his pronunciation? I heard about the Center for
Applied Linguistics, I heard they have a book called "English
Pronunciation for Speakers of Vietnamese" but I can't find it.
Does anyone know how to get in touch with the Center for Applied
Linguistics?

 Thanks in advance!
